Ted Rall, a cartoonist and contributor to both the New York Pravda a.k.a. the New York Times and Radio Moscow a.k.a. National Public Radio makes a passionate call for a violent revolution as the only way to solve America’s problems — which he compares to the four horsemen of the Apocalypse: wars, financial crises, unemployment, and oil spills.
The book’s editors call it “the most radical book published in decades.”Is Rall serious about launching a revolution to overthrow the government of the United States? Does he have his pitchfork ready for action? Apparently he has.Rall foresees that the chaos that typically ensues after the collapse or overthrow of an empire will surely affect America.

Thus has one of the big lies of U.S. political history morphed into a cliche — that Richard Nixon used racist politics to steal the South from a Democratic Party battling heroically for civil rights.

It’s always interesting when the New York Times promotes a false narrative – as it has on Ukraine by blaming the crisis all on “Russian aggression” – and then has to shift its storyline when events move in a different direction, like President Vladimir Putin’s recent peacemaking initiatives.On Thursday, the Times explained Putin’s call for an extended ceasefire
as a case of him caving in to U.S. pressure. Correspondents Andrew Roth and David S. Herszenhorn wrote:
“Faced with the threat of additional economic sanctions from Washington, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia discussed an extension of the cease-fire, which is to expire on Friday, in a telephone call with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President François Hollande of France and Ukraine’s new president, Petro O. Poroshenko.”

Fox News host Megyn Kelly previewed her upcoming exclusive interview with former domestic terrorist turned “education theorist” Bill Ayers on Thursday — and there don’t appear to be any softball questions.
When pressed about how many bombings he was involved in during his time with the violent, far-left domestic terrorist group Weather Underground, Ayers refused to answer.
He said he will never reveal how many bombings he personally had a hand in.Kelly noted — and Ayers confirmed — that he also stole money, ripped off the identities of dead babies and the group he founded continued carry out violent acts.
U.S. Postal Service Logging All Mail for Law Enforcement
NY Times ^ | 7-3-2013 | RON NIXONPosted on 6/22/2014, 7:04:58 AM by Citizen ZedLeslie
James Pickering noticed something odd in his mail last September: a handwritten card, apparently delivered by mistake, with instructions for postal workers to pay special attention to the letters and packages sent to his home.“Show all mail to supv” — supervisor — “for copying prior to going out on the street,” read the card.
It included Mr. Pickering’s name, address and the type of mail that needed to be monitored.
The word “confidential” was highlighted in green.
“It was a bit of a shock to see it,” said Mr. Pickering, who with his wife owns a small bookstore in Buffalo.
Obama’s Enforcer… “Even Jill Abramson, the former executive editor of the New York Times, has said that “the Obama administration has moved beyond protecting government secrets to threatening fundamental freedoms of the press to gather news.””
Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department gave bad advice to President Obama and the Pentagon in the controversial Bergdahl prisoner trade that the president could ignore federal law requiring prior notification to Congress.
This is just the latest example of how Holder helps the administration ignore the rule of law and crafts his “legal” opinions based on the desired political outcome, not the actual state of the law.Under Eric Holder, the Justice Department has stood the old Ronald Reagan maxim “trust but verify” on its head and adopted a “trust and we won’t let you verify” approach to its activities.
The Pentagon has an awful lot of leftovers, but luckily for law enforcement agencies across the United States they aren’t going to waste.Millions of dollars’ worth of military gear is distributed to local police forces on an annual basis, and these regular exchanges are occurring from coast to coast in towns and cities that are hardly considered epicenters of violent crime, let alone on par with the foreign warzones where these hand-me-downs, machine guns, armored cars and other made-for-battle items, were originally intended to be used.
New York Times: Demonizing Sgt. Bergdah
lThe New York Times via the Salt Lake Tribune ^ | Friday, June 6, 2014 | EditorialPosted on 6/7/2014, 9:03:45 AM by kristinnFour months ago, Sen. John McCain said he would support the exchange of five hard-core Taliban leaders for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.”I would support ways of bringing him home,” he told CNN, “and if exchange was one of them I think that would be something I think we should seriously consider.
“But the instant the Obama administration actually made that trade, McCain, as he has so often in the past…SNIPThough we criticized the administration for ignoring the law in not informing Congress of the transfer of the Taliban detainees 30 days in advance, leave it to Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other hyperventilators to claim that continued release of prisoners from Guantánamo without prior notice is now considered an impeachable offense, a ludicrous leap.SNIPThis duck-and-cover response is the result of the outrageous demonization of Bergdahl in the absence of actual facts. Republican operatives have arranged for soldiers in his unit to tell reporters that he was a deserter who cost the lives of several soldiers searching for him.
In fact, a review of casualty reports by Charlie Savage and Andrew Lehren of The New York Times showed there is no clear link between any military deaths and the search.SNIPAnd a classified military report shows that Bergdahl had walked away from assigned areas at least twice before and had returned, according to a report in The New York Times on Thursday.

Recently Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as secretary of state. The short version is, she doesn’t have one. But Clinton’s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a nonanswer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign.

The Texas Republican slammed an Associated Press story last week that detailed him missing every vote in Congress since Jan. 9 — 17 in all — and reported that he had been virtually unseen in Texas, where he is mounting a primary campaign from the right against incumbent Sen. John Cornyn.
In fact, Stockman told Breitbart News, he went on a trip with four other members of Congress to Egypt, Israel, England and Russia.

Monday, without comment (because he could not make a coherent one), Chief Justice John Roberts denied a request by the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons and the Alliance for Natural Health USA for a stay in the implementation of Obamacare.
The groups had made their application last Friday arguing that since the bill had been declared a tax by the Supreme Court with Justice Roberts himself the deciding vote, and it had originated in the Senate where the Constitution says revenue bills may not originate, the law was therefore unconstitutional and implementation of Obamacare should at least be stayed pending further examination.

What is most striking about the American police state is not the mega-corporations running amok in the halls of Congress, the militarized police crashing through doors and shooting unarmed citizens, or the invasive surveillance regime which has come to dominate every aspect of our lives.

By “police state,” I am referring to more than a society overrun by the long arm of the police. I am referring to a society in which all aspects of a person’s life are policed by government agents, one in which all citizens are suspects, their activities monitored and regulated, their movements tracked, their communications spied upon, and their lives, liberties and pursuit of happiness dependent on the government’s say-so.
